I was honored my two friends had asked me to help out with designing some graphics for their wedding! It was a fun project to help out on and I got the freedom to create graphics based on the theme of their wedding.
The theme of their wedding was inspired by Palm Springs with a desert vibe, so we chose some watercolor illustrations, some geometric backgrounds, and some gold frame vector elements to give it some flair.
The best method of choosing the design of any wedding invitations, signage or menu design is to make sure the elements are contrasting and not competing with each other. Subtle elements make can make a design more visually appealing.
A good rule of thumb when designing is to choose colors that are in harmony with each other, for these designs we chose a complimentary color scheme to reflect the style of the wedding. With lots of green succulents, we opted for a pink accent and that carried over to the flowers at the wedding. For the font choices we chose Palm Canyon and for the table numbers we chose Rollfast Black to match some of the geometric borders and backgrounds, we wanted to mix and match art deco elements to give it a visually interesting combination.
Some of the graphics and elements I use in these designs I bought from Creative Market, which is a great way to do it yourself if you're pressed for time.
